Default [Q] Phone was fine, ran out of battery, now "System Ui Has stopped" every few seconds

Hey,
Note 2 running PACMAN rom, android 4.3.

I woke up and checked it at 8am, no problems at all. Went to use it at 1pm and it had run out of battery. I plugged it into my computer to charge it, turned it on and it said "System UI has stopped. Blame Tyler" - and continues to do this every time you press OK, with about a 3 second gap in between each one.

I restart my phone quite regularly and I don't think I've installed anything that could be causing this. I've disabled XPosed but same problem. Any other ideas? Otherwise I'll have to just wipe it and start again, perhaps with CM. I need a working phone for tomorrow though!

Cheers

Maybe a silly question, but have you wiped cache and dalvik cache from recovery? If not try it.

This seems quite sinisiter - thanks for the suggestion but it hasn't worked, and it's unearthed something more concerning about the state of my phone (the TWRP messages, see below). Can't believe I didn't think to do that myself though! (I haven't messed around with ROMs for quite a while so am out of practice, I've had this one for a few months).


Delvik cache completed, then said something like "updating partition details. E: Error opening '/data/system/...." I/O Error" and various APKs - one of which was system UI. Wiping the cache again told me done, but loads of errors of similar APKs (This time in /data/data/ though). This sounds incredibly ominous though and I've never seen that error before in any of the wipes or anything I've done.

Restarted it but the system UI error messages persist. I want to wipe and install a fresh ROM but I'm worried I'm going to be left with a totally useless phone if things won't wipe or flash properly. Any ideas would be great.

I'm currently downloading a rom to flash with odin. I tried to do a nandroid backup but the same I/O errors appeared. I have no idea what could have caused this as the phone was running absolutely fine yesterday!

Yup. This might be the solution.
Helped me 90% of the times. Go to TWRP -> Advanced -> Fix Permissions
